I'm of the opinion that a flashing headlight is a seriously bad idea. It can be misinterpreted.

Silly, I have no idea why you'd want to do this. We all know it's not that safe out there, but really...

Just ride with brights if you want to be more visible. Save the money and buy a bright helmet.

Headlight Modulator

Hi Saftie: Yes, I have one, its on my MY2010, 10090RR. Made by the same company as in the YouTube video, Signal Dynamics.

I installed it 3 years ago, and have since rolled over 10,000 miles on the bike, with zero problems. It is feature rich and simple to engage/disengage without having to add a remote switch.

Signal Dynamics used to make the device as a 'universal fit' now it is only Plug & Play. Simply clip off the molded on plug, or purchase the universal adapter harness. I buried the device on my bike along side the headstock and kept the wiring neat and invisible between the headlight housing and the upper fork 'ears'. Download the installation instructions from Signal Dynamics for a superb wiring diagram.

A also recommend their excellent Back Off brake light modulator. It also is tiny and tucks in near the taillight.

Photo attached show the simple home made bracket to tuck the daylight sensor under the instrument cluster.

Usual disclaimer; simply a 'silly' safety minded customer of Signal Dynamics, no business relationship.

Ciao,
Dick

Is that really legal in US?
Here in Europe you will be charged a high sum of money for anything like that - and walk home with your bike confiscated......

Yes, it's legal but I read where riders recommend having the print out on you. It is not known to all cops

That brake light setup is not legal and sure the headlight would be the same here in Vic, Australia.
